I don't know difference between OpenVMS port and other. Can this feature
be ported to other plat-form ?

So I first take a look at smbwrapper code, but I can't build them on my
Linux box (new glibc problem, I see it on deja)
When build smbw.c, I've error like "dereferencing pointer to incomplete
type", so .....

If I've the .h et .so, no problem to build the Perl module (and others
languages!) . But I haven't this library; So how can I build them (In
waiting for Samba Core team developpement include them in next release)
? Update makefile when build smbclient for have my .so library ? Sorry
for my so puny english :-(
